We convened with our partners at Wisk on April 28 for an exciting episode of CoMotion LIVE on the social acceptance of urban air mobility: Are Cities Really Ready for Transportation in the Third Dimension?
Companies, cities and US federal agencies have been hard at work to speed along the implementation of low-altitude transportation over our cities. There is still much work to be done, though, to convince the public that aerial transit is a safe and desired mobility option. From noise pollution, privacy concerns, and safety — there’s still skepticism about our Jetsons future.
For this discussion we were joined with Fred Judson, Director of the Ohio Unmanned Aircraft Systems Center at Ohio Department of Transportation/DriveOhio; Beth Kigel, VP at HNTB and Chair of C-LAB’s UAM Taskforce; Jeannie Lam, Director of Strategy at Wisk; Yolanka Wulff, Executive Director of Community Air Mobility Initiative (CAMI); and your moderator Dan Dalton, VP Global Partnerships at Wisk.
